A dog in Texas named Bear ran around and got help from neighbors after Bear’s owner collapsed and hit her head from a seizure. This article from upi.com explains:
Bear, a 5-year-old German shepherd, tried to rouse its owner, Debbie Zeisler, and then began scratching at neighbors’ doors after Zeisler collapsed and hit her head on the front stairs of her house in Millsap, the Fort Worth, Texas, Star-Telegram reported Thursday.
Parker County animal control employees Karen Kessler and Terry Pena were nearby on an unrelated call and saw what Bear was doing, the newspaper said.
“Bear just crawled up in my lap while I was sitting in the truck. One of his tags said, ‘I am a service dog,’ and another said, ‘I am a seizure dog, said Kessler, Parker County’s animal control supervisor. “We knew there was a problem because service dogs normally don’t leave their people.”
It looks like Bear was a “seizure dog” specially trained to help in case the owner suffered from a seizure, and the training definitely paid off. I wonder how my own dog would react if he saw me lying on the ground. I suspect he would probably just sit on me.
